Jon Osterhout has been named interim football coach at American River College, taking over for Jerry Haflich, who will take at least one season off to continue tests related to dizzy spells following a golf mishap three years ago.
“I’m very excited, very proud for this opportunity,” said Osterhout, an All-America offensive lineman at Sacramento State. “JC football, these kids truly play for the love of the game. They don’t get a yearbook picture or a letterman’s jacket. A lot are motivated by their past history, as they were overlooked or they’re still growing. It makes it a great challenge.”
